Dining Room Restoration

With your help, the Friends are embarking on a major project to bring the Dining Room back to its elegance.

In 2018, along with your contributions, the Friends were awarded a $48,000 grant from NY State Parks & Trails, allowing us to start the restoration of the beautiful silk draperies in the dining room. The fabric has recently been selected and ordered.

We are going out to bid on painting the flat ceiling. We anticipate both of these 2 projects to be complete by the end of summer 2019.

The next part of the project is raising funds for the specialized restoration of the gilded ceiling, faux marble and Italian marble on the walls.
